disturbing report today. the fbi came out and said that there were more background checks, official ones, made for guns in december, following sandy hook, than in any month in america since 1998. so there are more guns being purchased in december than in any month since 1998. and that just increases exponentially the sheer volume of weaponry on the street and it's driven by fear from the gun rights lobbyists, nra and others, that if anyone had been armed at sandy hook, at the school, they would have dealt with the shooter. how do you try to deal with that mentality in a reasonable way that doesn't offend gun owners but actually works to reduce the total volume of guns rather than dramatically increase it? >> the second amendment is here to stay. people have a right to arm, have a right to handguns, within some reasonable regulation. i think you have to make people aware of the fact that, you know, confiscation is not going to happen. the notion that if you arm a lot of people, that somehow it would deter crime or deter these attacks, always incumbent on that approach, we have people who
